22

This number. Since June 5, 2018 it has been showing itself to me in different ways every day. I know it is the master builder but I feel there is much more to it. I have recorded some of the times (numerous) it has shown up to me in a myriad of ways and unexpected ways. I must make it a point that I don’t go looking for it. Perhaps confirmation bias because it’s there subconsciously but again, i put it out of mind until it shows itself on a license plate, receipt, time stamp in a database (I’m a software developer and sysadmin), or advertisement saying I can save 22% on a purchase by the 22nd of said month.

On clocks it is the most common. 7:22, 9:22, 14:22 (I use the 24 hr time format on my phone and anywhere else I can set it).

Some things I learned about 22: There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, 22 bones in human skull, add up the atomic mass (?) of carbon (C), oxygen (O), hydrogen (H) and nitrogen (N). And this tidbit about human chromosomes:

humans normally have 46 chromosomes (23 pairs) in each cell. Two copies of chromosome 22, one copy inherited from each parent, form one of the pairs. Chromosome 22 is the second smallest human chromosome, spanning more than 51 million DNA building blocks (base pairs) and representing between 1.5 and 2 percent of the total DNA in cells.
In 1999, researchers working on the Human Genome Project announced they had determined the sequence of base pairs that make up this chromosome. Chromosome 22 was the first human chromosome to be fully sequenced.
Identifying genes on each chromosome is an active area of genetic research. Because researchers use different approaches to predict the number of genes on each chromosome, the estimated number of genes varies. Chromosome 22 likely contains 500 to 600 genes that provide instructions for making proteins. These proteins perform a variety of different roles in the body.

I was hoping to get others’ thoughts and feelings about 22. Thank you.
